shows // The Funky Cuts
The funkiest beats, the most soulful breaks and the best in music chat covering fifty years of black and black influenced music.
Felonious Munk is resident DJ at Southside Soul which meets on the last Saturday of every other month at Pollok ES Club 111 Titwood Road G41 2DG.
beat, psyke, reggae, afro, and soul+funk
I've been hosting The Funky Cuts for a few years now and whilst I haven't exhausted all the soul and funk records in my collection I thought it was time for a change. The Riverside Museum of Transport have booked me to dj a sixties night there and I've been sorting out music to play. Today's show will reflect on that selection which takes in sixties beat, soul, ska and a sprinkle of Popcorn.

album trackin off the shelf in the parlour.
I've sorted out not only the albums but the tracks I'm going to play. Which is a novelty for me and I'm sure it will end in tears. All vinyl today.
Nolan Porter , The Trammps, Mongo Santamaria, Grant Green, Hambone, Jack McDuff, Defunkt, Gichy Dan, Kid Creole, Chic, Herbie Hancock and others.
As I've seen several of these artists in concert reminiscence will be kept to a minimum but the funk and soulometers are set to maximum. tune in at subcity.org from one or listen again later.

from deep in the motown vaults
Motown records have released a second box set of seven inch singles The Motown 7s Box Volume 2 (rare and unreleased vinyl) In reality they have all been released before on CD but most are making their first appearance on vinyl and and certainly on a seven inch single.
I did a special on the first box set on 26th November which is still available on Listen Again (Click on Older The Funky Cuts Episodes)and have been playing the 45s at various club nights.
Today's show will feature other rare Motown recordings still to be released on vinyl and some others that might be still lying in the vaults.

dipping in to some soulful and funky 45s
I've picked out thirty seven inch single from the bottom shelf including records from Taj Mahal, Bobby Thurston, Martha Velez, The Persuaders, The Persuasions and the Voices of East Harlem as well as some tunes from Traffic, Pigbag and T Connection.
The ones I don't play this week will feature in future episodes. So some soul, disco,funk , blues and rock on today's Funky Cuts.

sonic quality guaranteed on today's funky cuts
I've dug out sme stuff I haven't played in a while and maybe some that hasn't been played at all. Eric Clapton playing some funk stuff with the Delaney and Bonnie band, Duane Allman stepping aside from sessions at Muscle Shoals to play some Blues with the Allman Brothers Band. Some recent sounds from Detroit, a touch of Latin and some 45s too. Tune in
